The County of Simcoe will host a statutory public meeting on a proposed first phase growth management amendment to the County’s Official Plan.

The proposed first phase growth management Official Plan Amendment (OPA) has been prepared in association with the County’s Municipal Comprehensive Review.

The aim is to bring the Official Plan into conformity with the Provincial Growth Plan, which requires the County to plan for a population of 555,000 and 198,000 jobs by 2051.

This proposed OPA represents the first of multiple amendments to the existing Official Plan that will establish where and how growth is to occur over the next 50 years.

The meeting will be live-streamed on the County’s YouTube channel for public viewing and interested parties who wish to speak at the meeting can register to attend virtually.

To participate in the meeting by providing a five-minute pre-recorded video presentation or a five-minute live virtual presentation, pre-registration is required by no later than 12 noon on Friday, June 24.

Residents can also choose to submit a written submission on the proposed OPA to the County Clerk by mail or e-mail before noon, Friday, June 24.

The virtual meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 28, at 10:00 a.m.
